Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Frug, one of this country's most noted feminist legal scholars, embodies the antiessentialist feminist doctrine in eight essays collected here, three of which were published during her lifetime and five uncompleted ones issued in various law reviews after her 1991 murder. They are divided into three sections: "Feminist Doctrine," "Re-reading Contracts," and "A Postmodern Feminist Legal Manifesto." Frug's writing is often humorous and always penetrating, as she traces the history of legal sexual equality, reviewing important court cases. She also analyzes conservative feminist and progressive feminist readings of Carol Gilligan's In a Different Voice (Harvard Univ. Pr., 1982), as well as gendered aspects of a contracts casebook. Her unfinished "A Feminist Postmodern Legal Manifesto" ends the book; after Frug's stabbing death, this essay was the subject of a controversial parody by the Harvard Law Review . Ironically, her "Manifesto" reveals how the law persists in permitting, even mandating, the terrorization, maternalization, and sexualization of the female body. Highly recommended for women's studies and law collections.
